Greetings and Salutations

First new blog post. Scary! I've had the idea of reentering the blogosphere (ugh, I really dislike that word, but anyway...) floating around in the back of my head for months and months. I've started and deleted a bajillion first posts. I've wasted hours searching for the perfect page theme. I have a google doc with a ton of potential topics.

I'm of that subcategory of perfectionists who don't like to start anything if they don't think they can do a good job at it and give it the attention it deserves. It's why my files at work are meticulously organized, but my bedroom looks like it was hit by a tornado. I didn't want to spend weeks or months developing a web presence and then let it fizzle. Then I realized that the probability that anyone but me and maybe a few of my facebook friends would read this and care one way or the other was pretty low. So here I am.

I'm not quite sure yet what direction this thing will take. It will probably center around modest and plus-size fashion. I have found several blogs out there that focus on the big-girl clothes. I also follow several "modest" fashion blogs, run by girls from a variety of backgrounds, including LDS, Conservative Catholic, Jewish, and Muslim leanings. I haven't found much in the way of Apostolic/Pentecostal style blogs, however, so I think that's the niche into which I'm going to attempt to wedge myself. I get bored easily, though, and I crave variety, so I'm sure I'll be throwing some other stuff into the mix. Music, religion, crafting, cooking, politics...they all may crop up from time to time. We'll figure it out as we go along. So let's do this thing!
